It happened one night( Visual )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Opposites attract with magnetic force in this romantic road-trip delight, about a spoiled runaway socialite and a roguish man-of-the-people reporter who is determined to get the scoop on her scandalous disappearance. The first film to accomplish the very rare feat of sweeping all five major Oscar categories (best picture, best actor, best actress, best director, and best screenplay), is among the most gracefully constructed and edited films of the early sound era

5 editions published between 1960 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cantrell defends Rutledge as witnesses give testimony (relived in flashbacks) revealing the sergeant's gallantry, and the shocking truth behind the alleged crimes. Ford, who attacked racism in The Searchers, explores similar territory in this landmark Western, the power of which still rings out with uncommon force decades later
The breaking point( Visual )

6 editions published between 1950 and 2017 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michael Curtiz brings a master skipper's hand to the helm of this thriller, Hollywood's second crack at Ernest Hemingway's To Have And Have Not. John Garfield stars as Harry Morgan, an honest charter-boat captain who, facing hard times, take on dangerous cargo to save his boat, support his family, and preserve his dignity. Left in the lurch by a freeloading passenger, Harry starts to entertain the criminal propositions of a sleazy lawyer (Wallace Ford) as well as the playful come-ons of a cheeky blonde (Patricia Neal), making a series of compromises that stretch his morality--and his marriage--further than he'll admit. Hewing closer to Hemingway's novel than Howard Hawks's Bogart-Bacall vehicle does, The Breaking Point charts a course through daylight noir and working-class tragedy, guided by Curtiz's effortless visual fluency and a stoic, career-capping performance from Garfield"--Container
